Degree is the number of connections a node has; the larger the degree, the more connections the node has. In Figure 3.2, degree is illustrated by the position of node G in the star network: G has degree six, while all other nodes have degree one, meaning that G will have more opportunities for access to information or greater ability to influence than all the other nodes in the network.
